Some of y'all may not have heard this before, so it may be hard to believe, but... it's okay to have a bad day. It's okay to be sad, or have doubts. It's okay to question your decisions sometimes, or the decisions of others - should they affect you. The thing is, none of us… Continue reading 208. How to… cope when you’re drowning.
In our virtual world, we're taking a little chance every time we get to know someone. We know nothing about them at first glance apart from maybe where they like to shop - how they like their avatar to look. Everything else is a bit of a gamble. Should we get to know them? Should… Continue reading 187. How to… make real friends.
If we were all put on this earth to do nothing more than grow old, pay bills, and work every day until we die, it wouldn't be a very exciting life, would it?

It's been a long couple days, and I'm so very tired... but at the same time, there's a few things going on that just have my heart so full I feel like it could burst.

This is… Continue reading 133. How to… embrace the darkness.

In any case, I managed to escape with what remains of my sanity (mostly) intact, and I'm glad to… Continue reading 92. How to… recover.
When we're little, we hear so many stories that start with "Once upon a time..." We hear about princesses locked in tall towers, dragons, and knights on white horses, love at first sight. So many things that make the world seem so wonderful. And we want those things. We want our very own story, and… Continue reading 75. How to… make your mark.
It's okay to mourn people that come and go in your life... whether it's your second life, or your real one. Some people were meant to be there. They're friends, confidants, even lovers, and they leave a mark on your heart. But some people? Some were meant to only be there for a short time.… Continue reading 61. How to… remember.
